Klopp Scouse Lesson

You can take the boy out of Dortmund, but..........

Everybody's favourite German Jurgen Klopp clearly hasn't lost that good old-fashioned schadenfreude since arriving in England.

The 48-year-old manager joined Liverpool in October after seven successful years at Borussia Dortmund, where he remains to this day revered by the supporters.

Well, he was revered, but now we're talking full-on deity status at Signal Iduna Park after his truly brilliant reaction to Bayern Munich's 2-1 home defeat by Mainz on Wednesday.

Jhon Cordoba struck an 86th-minute winner at the Allianz Arena to deny the German giants, who were comfortably Klopp's biggest rivals during his stint with Die Borussen.

Consequently, the Reds boss could not contain his happiness upon hearing that Pep Guardiola's troops had been defeated - and it's outstanding.

It was a good night all round for Klopp, whose Liverpool side demolished Manchester City 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday night, courtesy of goals from Adam Lallana, James Milner and Roberto Firmino.

Even sweeter was the fact that it came just three days after the Sky Blues edged out the Merseysiders on penalties to win the League Cup on Sunday evening.

But we're still sure Klopp is happier about the Bayern result, based on that laugh.
